Imagine a world where New York Times best-selling author, comedian, actor, television, and podcast host Adam Carolla is the President of the United States. Can’t do it? You don’t have to! Adam has done it for you!
Podcast king Adam Carolla first shared his unique, but always funny world view in his New York Times best seller, In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks - but he’s not done.
In President Me, Carolla shares his vision for a different, better America free from big issues like big government down to small problems like hotel alarm clock placement. Running on an anti-narcissism platform, President Carolla calls for a return to the values of an earlier time when stew and casserole were on every dinner table and there were no “service dogs” on airplanes. President Me hits right at the heart of what makes our country really annoying, and offers a plan to make all of our lives, but mostly Adam’s, much better.

I am a fan of Adam Carolla. His book is an easy read and laugh out loud funny. Some of the content will be very familiar to fans of his daily Podcast, but still very well worth purchasing. The Chapter where he addresses the United Nations is a stand out. Hilarious.
"Hilarious and Painfully True"
I know Carolla is a comedian and I know he is joking about some of the topics but he hits the nail directly on the head.
This book will not sit well with liberals and people who take themselves too seriously. He comes off as a racist and insensitive. Oh well! It is very funny and takes topics on directly in your face.
I am able to look past the fact that he is saying the things that some don't want to say and that he does point out things most want to brush under the rug and see the bigger point. He has made a very funny book that addresses real issues.
I will definitely be looking into more from Carolla.
"Funny, Truthy, Douchey"
Adam's performance of the title made it top notch. He's a comedian, so you would expect his timing/delivery to be great, and it was.
There was a lot of politically incorrect truth here mixed with a fed-up attitude. There were some stories that ran on too long and times when I said, "What a douchebag", but overall, really funny. He's like the Libertarian version of John Stewart.
Funny, truthful and not afraid to ruffle the panties of some liberals and Democrats.
"Started off a bit slow but picked up"
When he got to the UN part it was laugh out loud funny. That alone was probably worth the purchase.
"Quite entertaining, but repetitive..."
The only problem for me was that, as an avid Adam Carolla daily podcast listener, I'd heard 99.5% of the stories in this book several times. Though there was very little new, Adam's delivery is always entertaining.
No, because its stand-up comedy on paper.... but I'd recommend it to others.
Any good comedian's humor book.
No one can deliver a comedian's words like the comedian themself. Carolla read by anyone else would be bad.
His logical politics , they match up so easily with my own ... and they are both humorous and revealing in contrast to real politicians.
If you enjoyed either of his first two books, or his podcast, its a must read.
finally somebody who says the things we are all thinking and unlike politicians I believe he actually believes it
"Adam for POTUS"
Adam brings a smile and head-nod to the listener's face with each of his proposed Policies - should he be elected. Of course, some are a bit outlandish, but that's the comedian's tongue-in-cheek way of showing how ridiculous the current status quo is.
"Gets my vote!"
I would vote for Adam Carolla, for president, if the choice were given. I have waaaaay too much in common with this man and his ideals.
I'm going to pass this on to my young adult children, in the hope that my years of advice are now pounded into their ears by another logical human being.
Good job Carolla.
If you like the traditional Carolla style, then this is for you. Great comedy, insults and insight.
"Adam is the new king of all media"
I've downloaded and listen to all of Adam's audio books. they're always very well done and very well-told I love listening to his audio books.
